Commercial/Procurement Lawyer (London but remote initially)

Advantage Resourcing are working with our Legal client for a Qualified solicitor or barrister who can offer 3 yrs+ PQE as a commercial/procurement Lawyer.

The posts will advise on the European Programmes and the appointee, while based in London, will be allocated to one of the regional offices as their lead lawyer and will be expected to develop that relationship by visiting and providing training.

This work is operational in nature, fast-paced and can require negotiation to manage demand at pressure points where deadlines are approaching. There is scope to adjust other work areas according to skills, but the main areas of legal expertise will relate to state aid, procurement and grant funding alongside general public law.

There may be an opportunity to assist in the design of the UKSPF from the early stages, or to get involved in broader policy issues around integration and cohesion policy. This work is intellectually demanding and requires creativity and very good analytical skills. The posts would provide experience of advising (including drafting funding agreements and) and engagement with senior officials and departmental boards. Some involvement in working with litigation colleagues in defending claims is likely.

The work will include contributing to the smooth running of the Legal Directorate by

  • Making an active contribution in team meetings, providing reports and returns to Directorate management, as required;
  • Complying with the department’s record and knowledge management requirements, adhering to relevant guidance
  • Complying with the department’s time-recording scheme

Your Legal professional skills should include:

  • Sound understanding of commercial law, including in particular public procurement and state aid. Broader knowledge of public law would be useful.
  • Reliable legal judgment and appreciation of legal risk.
  • The ability to think strategically and creatively, see legal issues in their wider context and advise accordingly.
  • Sound analysis, using secure legal research to produce timely and fit for purpose advice.
  • The ability to communicate advice effectively both in writing and orally.
